Regina Jeffers brings North Carolina sensibilities to her modern adaptation of 'Pride and Prejudice,' and writes a sensual, fiery retelling of William and Elizabeth. But, this couple seems to have more in common with Burton and Taylor than Austen's legendary duo.

Will and Liz meet in college and begin a VERY heated affair that consumes them both, except for Will's plans to support his family. A love affair was never part of a Quarterback's success story, and Will would never deviate from the expe

It has a good theme, good narrative voice, but I couldn't quite get through the always back and forward relationship the couple had. It was too much to get together and split, than back again and not telling the Darcy of the child - Lizzy was a bit weak of a character. Didn't enjoy that part. I get all that she and he had to go through, but in the end it was to much, for me.
In my mind, even with a different set/time/plot... Darcy and Lizzy are always much of what Jane Austen created: pride, prej
Hmmm!! I love Regina's books but this one fell flat for me. There was definitely romance and angst with a lot of misunderstanding thrown in. I guess I was not totally in sink with how the story progressed. For the Pride and Prejudice lovers this was really not a modern version, but it did have the character names and lots of lover spats! The parents of Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth(Will & Liz) loved P&P hence the names. Of course there is the proverbial villian in the form of "George Westing ...more

This modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice was very enjoyable. The story is not really P&P in the modern world, but more of Austen's characters in the modern world.

There were several times I wanted to shake Will and Elizabeth, their misunderstandings intrude and are the means of separating them. When they finally do come together and communicate their problems away, fate sneaks up and throws them yet another hurdle that kept me up to the wee hours of the morning reading lest I stay awake f
This is a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. It is set in North Carolina, and the main characters are named after Austen's Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. They meet in college and develop a life long love, although like Austen's Persuasion, they are separated for many years. Because it is a modern tale, there is some sexual content, but, at least, the characters are not promiscuous. They only love each other. Boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl - the typical love story.

This was an interesting twist on P&P with its modernization. Three are parts I love, and parts I feel went too long. It takes seven years and two kids for Darcy and Elizabeth to finally marry. The roller coster ride they felt was something I did too, which is why I enjoyed the book. But, it also leaves me emotionally drained after reading it. While, I couldn't put it down I don't like feeling drained afterwards.

Writing about “passion” comes easily to Regina Jeffers. A master teacher for thirty-seven years, she has passionately taught thousands of students English in the public schools of West Virginia, Ohio, and now in North Carolina. Yet, “teacher” does not define her as a person. Ask any of her students or her family, and they will tell you Regina is passionate about so many things: her son, children i ...more
